This June and July, I've been busy reading poems and stories as a volunteer screener for a writing contest. I learned a lot from the experience, and share my findings in this article: Leave comments at The Review Review (a great resource for writers.)

Please visit the wonderful Read Short Fiction site and comment on my story "Replacement" featured this May 2014. Consider yourself warned that this is a literary story and includes a sex scene and some mild drug references. But I want to hear about the lines that made you laugh.
Okay, every poet has written a response to William Carlos Williams' famous poem "This Is Just to Say," and now I'm one of them. See what you think of my take on the current edition of Turtle Island Quarterly. Yes, I really do have weasels (fishers) in my back yard.

Here is a short and feisty humorous essay before the holiday season begins . . . with Hallowrath. The author photo is me in my incredible yet convincing Halloween costume. The whole Issue #10 is themed on the seven deadly, so enjoy some sin served up from Portland, Oregon's own Penduline.

That's the title of an experimental creative nonfiction piece now published in theNewerYork's Electric Encyclopedia of Experimental Literature (the EEEL). Read the middle column for the core narrative, and read the flanking columns as footnotes to the text. Post your thoughts from the link at the top right of the page. (I love their illustration for this!) And, yes, the title is an actual line from the Snellen eye chart: Evotz2

JCCA looks for poems that say much with few words. I am honored to have my poem "When Soul Mates Meet" published online by them. If you click DECOMPRESS below the bio, you'll get a short essay I wrote about the process of writing it.

Shin-en akemashita omedeto! A short story I wrote that was published in print years ago has just come online in Best Fiction. This is an old-fashioned story about vengeance and guilt that could only happen in modern Japan. Despite the cold winters, Japanese apartments are not built with insulated walls. There is little personal privacy in Japan, which non-Japanese often forget. I hope you read it. Come back here to tell me what you think.
